Borderlands

Since the middle of March, National Public Radio (NPR) aired the multi-part series Borderland: Dispatches From the U.S.-Mexico Boundary across its radio network. Lead by NPR reporter Steve InskeepBorderland is an expansive and poignant series dealing with “the people and the crossing” along the almost 2000-mile border between the United States and Mexico. Today, NPR launched a wonderful photo and multimedia essay featuring twelve of these stories. With beautiful imagery, maps, and even a clock detailing stats about the border region while the viewer was online, Borderland is an excellent example of long-form storytelling with visual elements that enhance the story and bring greater understanding of the topic.
